Apron Pan Roller Chain Conveyor Belt Overview

Fluent Conveyors offers extremely durable double beaded apron pan conveyor belts with little to no maintenance. These belts are positioned to move both horizontally and at an incline with heavy, wet, hot and abrupt materials such as MSW, cement, ore, sand stone, garbage, castings, scrap metal and more.

Double Beaded Apron Pan Belts are built from very high-grade, heat treated steel to reduce wearing of the belt. These belts are mounted on a steel bushed roller with heavy duty chain. These belts are almost leak proof and come in a standard pan and deep pan to meet the applications requirements. Fluent double beaded apron pan belts are made-to-order belts for brand new projects or replacement belts for all manufactures including Hustler Conveyors, R.E.M., Endura-Veyor, CP, BHS, Krause and more.

Engineering & Manufacturing Specifications

Engineering Specs

Fluent Conveyors belts are engineered with industry leading 3D CAD.  The manufacturing team has over 50 years of combined experience on conveyor belts and understand the most complex applications to ensure the correct belt is always used. All replacement belts are engineered closely with the production team to ensure the processes from engineering to manufacturing meets tight tolerances, QA validation and project deadlines.

Manufacturing Specs

Fluent Conveyors belts have been tested, validated and approved to meet the quality tolerances our engineering team requires. The production team has over 50 years of combined experience paired with a new technology, validated core processes and a great quality assurance process that ensures all belt specs meet approval drawings and application requirements.

Preventative Maintenance

Apron pan conveyor belts only require standard maintenance to guarantee a trouble free operation. These belts come pre-tensioned and run for over two days prior to shipment to ensure they fit correctly and run smoothly.

Core adjustments and maintenance:

  • Visual inspection (belt, damage, pan issues). This inspection is important to ensure that all of the components on your conveyor will continue to function as designed.  Further protecting the other components and increasing the overall life of your machine.
  • General removal of debris (chainways are clear and rollers/chain bars are free of debris).  Keeping your conveyor clean is imperative to remove the risk of jams or potential failure.
  • Auto Chain Oilers are full and functioning.  Keeping your chain properly oiled is imperative to the function and longevity of your conveyor.  A properly oiled chain significantly reduces running friction (saving you energy) and can last more than twice as long as an under oiled chain.
  • Maintaining proper chain tension.  This should be done through periodic visual checks to ensure the chain is not loos enough to slip over teeth on the drive sprockets, but also not so tight as to add friction and resistance to the system.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • Can conveyor chains snap?

      Chain on a roller chain conveyor are very rigid. It would require an excessive side load, abrupt torque or rust over a long period of time. It is important to do regular maintenance to ensure that your chain is properly lubricated and in good working order.  A Fluent Conveyors chain is sized such that it will never snap under regular working conditions. 

    • How wide are roller chain conveyors?

      Fluent Roller Chain conveyors can be purchased in widths from 12” to 120” depending on the customer’s requirements. 

      Industry standard widths are typically up to 84" wide. Depending on the belt type, additional materials and engineering may be required for your application i.e. rubber combo belts require a longitudinal splice over 84" wide.
